Winner: Jurrell Casey
Despite missing two games, Jurrell Casey was still able to finish just two sacks shy of the second-highest output of his career. Casey also answered the bell in the playoffs by posting 2.5 sacks in three games, two of which came in the divisional round win over the Ravens.
Including the playoffs, Casey totaled 4.5 sacks in his last five games.
Winner: DaQuan Jones
Putting his ability to get pressure up the middle aside, DaQuan Jones had his best season as a pro in 2019. Not everything he did showed up on the stat sheet, but he was a big reason for the Titans’ improved run defense and was a force in the middle all season long.
Winner: Jeffery Simmons
After notching one sack in his debut in Week 7, Jeffery Simmons didn’t get to the quarterback a lot after that with just one sack the rest of the way. However, Simmons wasn’t even expected to play this season at one point thanks to an ACL tear he suffered last February, and the fact that he made his debut as early as he did was an impressive feat in and of itself.
Big Jeff was also a disruptive force up the middle and often drew double teams from opposing offenses. Simmons will be one year removed from his return from the ACL injury next season and we should see major improvement from him in his sophomore campaign.
